There’s something irresistible to kids (err, and some grown-ups) about jumping into rain puddles in waterproof rainboots, isn’t there? Thus, The Girl Who Loved Wellies is a great, lighthearted read that will appeal to most children.
In particular, they will identify with Molly, a little girl who loves her rainboots (i.e. wellies) so much that she refuses to take them off. This simple, humorous tale pairs well with the exuberant, cheery illustrations by the author and is sure to bring a smile to anyone’s face. The text is also simple enough for older preschoolers to read on their own.
p.s. Don’t miss the many quirky shoe designs on the endpapers — and get the kids to choose their favourite(s) too!
